Mwamba blame slow start for the narrow loss to Quins

Mwamba tactician Kevin Wambua has blamed a slow start to the game for their 29-26 loss to Harlequins in their first match of the season in a rescheduled match at RFUEA on Sunday.
Kulabu had a start to forget when they found themselves trailing 24-5 at halftime and the game seemed more than done for Quins.
Harlequins wanted to stamp their authority from the word go in the second half with an early unconverted try taking matters to 29-5. Mwamba, however, responded well with three converted tries to make the scores 29-26 setting the match for a tense ending with Harlequins managing to hold on for a win.
“It was a case of two halves first half, we played poorly in the first half and we did not play in well and we were not decisive enough. At halftime we had a talk and the boys were hungrier enough and we scored several points but we unlucky not to win.” Wambua on the slow start
The coach was quick to point out players who impressed in the duel picking Eugene Nzioka and Brad Owako for their performances off the bench and Tony Owour who started in the match
“Tony has been superb and Eugene Nzioka and Brad Owako coming off the bench gave us the go forward and momentum.” The coach said.
Mwamba will look to turn their fortunes around when they face Homeboyz on Saturday.
